Before you go to the rest of Sussex, London or more of England in the links in the rest of this section, we hope you'll join us for a tour of Hammerwood (which many have found enjoyable) where, within striking distance of Gatwick Airport we do bed and breakfast. Don't forget to look at our other recommended Stately Homes and Historic Houses to visit in the South East, Gardens to visit and Stunning and Stately places to Stay throughout the UK. There is also a tourguide who specialises in showing you hidden England and another you might visit Hammerwood Park, :-) we have no vested interest in the tourism links throughout this page.

Here's the latest set of UK sites, which have been added to this page and here's http://there.is/world the newest world tourism sites.

When using the Channel Tunnel don't forget you'll need to change your pounds into franks and then to marks or guilders - and each time pay a money-changer for his pranks to do it. If Member of Parliament Quentin Davies (who recently stood up for what his conscience told him to do) succeeds, European tourism upon which so much of our heritage depends will get a welcome shot in the arm. Click here for his arguments for a Common European Currency. If he was MP for my area I'd think of changing party and vote for him!

Lycos and Altavista seem to be better than the whole of the rest put together! Yahoo gets our vote for the worst - we had about a dozen pages registered there and the entries suddenly disappeared.

May we have our pages linked to yours? British Tours, founded in 1958, are the originators of car and driver-guide sightseeing. We offer personal and flexible tours by car with qualified driver-guides.

What do you think of http://worldhotel.com? Is it worth including them despite this response to being asked for a return URL? "Because links are advertising, we try very much to limit our links. We prefer to develop our own pages interneally or through joint ventures that generate revenue for the venture. We do not care about techies, Internet surfers, or search engines. We have an audience we advertise directly to. We do not care about anyone else beyond that audience. Search engines list us because that makes them more complete. That makes them able to seek higher advertising revenues or other benefits."


Suggestion: I am going to be stuck (as so many others are) at Heathrow for about 8 hours between planes (and of course this happens to Gatwick and Stanstead) why not put in a little section for each airport or least Gatwick since it is so close to you, as to what might be doable sightseeing by taxi or perhaps rental car rather than sitting in terminal? Any ideas? Here's Gatwick Aviation Society - Old Airliners and more about Gatwick by Vince

Aardvark's EFL Resources which is my collection of addresses, links and resources for students and teachers of English as a Foreign Language ("EFL" in the trade).

There are some interactive exercises (in Javascript) and a "Flags & Countries Quiz" that might appeal even to non-EFL folk!
